Frequently Asked Questions

Why are you more qualified than other people to do this?

I am a certified teacher and learning facilitator with over 4 years of professional experience working with children. Most importantly, I have 3 years of experience successfully implementing democratic and self-directed methods in a public school environment. I was exposed to the topics of education, schooling and learning even before I started teaching, so I was blessed to be able to start my teaching career in a very progressive and alternative way. I was immediately successful in introducing project work methods, instead of classical lecture methods and slowly I introduced more and more of the democratic methods into my classroom.

How long will this take?

The 4 coaching sessions are recommended to be spaced out in a month, once a week. To implement the knowledge can take 4-12 weeks, depending on the dynamics of your learning community.

Is this only for people working in a public school?

No, I work with people working who work with children from all sorts of industries and professions. I also work with parents to help them introduce democratic and self-directed methods into their family life. No matter your background, the information I can provide will help you become better in dealing with children.
